Today Julie and Dayna discuss what has been happening in Canadian courts following the Pintea decision, made 18 months ago by the Supreme Court of Canada, which set a new standard for how courts deal with self-represented litigants. Pintea instructed other courts to always consider the fact that SRLs are not equally familiar or knowledgeable about law as experienced legal counsel, and that judges should assist to ensure they understand the process and can meaningfully participate. We ask Colin Feasby of Oslers Hoskin Harcourt, who was pro bono counsel for Mr. Pintea, and Ranjan Agarwal, pro bono counsel for NSRLP's intervention, what they think about the information in our "hot off the presses" report on cases decided across the country involving SRLs post-Pintea. In other news: Ali recaps our wonderfully successful 5th anniversary “Continuing the Dialogue” event at Windsor Law last week, which saw justice system stakeholders and SRLs from across Canada and the US come together to discuss the state of Access to Justice, and practical steps we can take to reduce the justice gap. Stay tuned for our upcoming Dialogue Event episode!
